I'm a bestselling, experienced ghostwriter based in the UK. I have worked on many commercial projects with major publishers and have written a number of bestselling titles.
In 2022, four of my books were launched with major publishers, and I am currently developing proposals for three more. I have recently worked with the remarkable Shaneda Daly on her memoir, 'Sins of the Father,' which was published by John Blake books, with a major campaign in Ireland, followed by the UK release earlier this year. Della Wright's story, 'Trapped', was published in 2022 and linked to the vitally important campaign for 'Della's Law' which continues to receive widespread media coverage. 'Sorry for your loss' by Kate Marshsll was also published in 2022 and looked at a year in the life of a mortuary. I also worked with Ken Wharfe and Ros Coward on their book reflecting on the lasting impact of Princess Diana. This was covered by dozens of outlets nationally and internationally, with the paperback publication due in 2023. Scarlett Jones's memoir of 2020 will reach the Swedish market this year, and talks are underway for further books with two previous clients.
My first book - 'The Step Child' - was a global bestseller and continues to hold its place in Amazon's Top 100 for this genre. From the point of writing that book, I realised it was fantastic privilege to be given the chance to help others speak out. I am particularly interested in memoirs which give a voice to the silenced, to those who have been oppressed and held back, but who now want to ensure the world hears their story. I have been lucky enough to work with many many publishers on books which cover everything from abuse survival to family issues, from psychic guides to animal adventures, from business ideas to lifestyle guides. I have worked on many projects which have been subject to Non Disclosure Agreements, and always maintain confidentiality.
Although I have always written, before journalism and ghosting, I was a university lecturer, and am still interested in political topics, particularly those of gender and sexual politics. I have written university textbooks and research papers, conference presentations and inaugural speeches, publicity material and columns, newspaper features and leader pieces.
I live on the beautiful North East coast of Scotland with my family and dog - but I do work internationally. Since lockdown, many projects have been completed through Zoom and clients have found that a very easy way to work - I'll be happy to offer this as an option for any future clients who prefer to use that approach.
I am able to respond very quickly to enquiries. I also offer a free, confidential 15-minute Zoom or telephone chat to potential clients.
I look forward to hearing your story!
